Everyone talks about sabbaticals – a short time-out designed to help you hit reset or refresh and feel recharged and renewed.
What if you didn’t have to hit that button anymore? What if you lived in a state of perpetual Sabbath?
Sabbath is constant, habitual.
Sabbaticals are temporary, a separation between you and something else.
Sabbaticals serve an important purpose: they bring immediate, noticeable space into your life. It’s removing one thing to bring in something else: removing something that’s begun to feel like a negative and introducing something else, usually its exact opposite.
A common example: Digital sabbaticals.
People do digital sabbaticals when they feel overwhelmed by social media, blogs, websites – when they feel burned out from information overload. When they feel energetically depleted by behaviors and patterns and need to refill their cup.
They take a break for X amount of days and return feeling brand new, breathing easier, creatively revived. They’ve stayed away from Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, ignored the blogs they frequent and their online haunts and refrained from the constant checking off their inbox. They’ve reveled in the freedom of not being connected 24/7.
One thing that’s so easy to miss out on doing? Noticing what’s sitting just underneath the surface, why they needed to take a sabbatical in the first place.
I’ve taken so many sabbaticals, but it wasn’t until this year that I really honed in on what was underneath all of that. I would unplug or swear off of caffeine or take a vacation, but things stayed at the surface level, I didn’t dig beneath it.
When I did I discovered something that changed things for me on a core level.
I was hungry for Sabbath: peace, space, ease, grace.
Let’s hit the pause button and look at the flip side: Sabbath.
When you introduce Sabbath into your life, you’re inviting in space, breath, peace. You can pause in the art of and the act of noticing what is working and what areas need some attention and TLC.
You’re refining the foundation of your life: what matters most to you and taking the first steps in releasing what you’ve outgrown.
Let’s let go of these things together.
I’m opening up a small group coaching circle: Devotionals.
Autumn’s topic: Sabbath and creating space.
Devotionals are four-week programs that invite a small gathering of women to explore and sink into different self-care practices, the ones that help you to fill your own cup.
Topics vary from session-to-session and season-to-season, but the heart-focused work and unyielding support and belief in you is a constant.
This time around we’ll be diving into Sabbath: What it is and ways to begin to cultivate it, creating space in our lives, honoring our boundaries, the art of saying no, and sinking deeper into the practice of Sabbath vs. Sabbatical.
Four weeks of ease-creating practices, conversations and deep connections.
I have THREE spaces open in the circle for autumn.
